Tinkerbell Cake

A friend of mine threw a birthday party for her daughter-Tinkerbell themed-and asked me to make her a cake. Of course I said yes! I had fun making this cake, a 9" single tier confetti cake with white frosting.

Tinkerbell herself was slightly tricky to do. I cut her body parts individually (that sounds creepy-sorry) from fondant. Cutting (I used an x-acto knife) wasn't too difficult to do, but it was a little tricky getting the parts to fit back together exactly. I think it turned out pretty good for my first try. She is really sparkly but unfortunately the photos do not show it very well. The rest was fairly easy-just cut and paste. The flowers and leaves are also sparkly. I love Wilton's shimmer dust!

The flowers on the sides were a big hit...all the little girls wanted one!
